Item No.: 9049 Price : SOLD
Description :
Here is an original, Mexican Model 1902 Mauser Rifle manufactured by Deutsche Waffen-und Munitionsfabriken (DWM) of Berlin in 1903. It is chambered for the 7x57mm (7mm Mauser) cartridge. Mexico 's first rifle of Mauser design was the Model 1895. The M1902 was the second type Mauser they adopted. Both of these types were contracted for and produced in Germany. In 1910, Mexico began producing its own Mauser style rifle. The Model 1902 saw heavy use in the Mexican Revolution, the bloody Civil War that saw the end of dictatorship and the establishment of a Constitutional Republic. Lasting from 1910 until 1917, these were the days of Pancho Villa and Emiliano Zapata. The Model 1902 rifles served through the thick of it and it is unusual to find one in nicer condition. This rifle is in very good to fine condition. It is all matching, including the stock and the cleaning rod. It retains the Mexican Crest on the receiver ring and on the stock. The rifle has more than 90% of its factory blued finish remaining. There are a few tiny speckles of brown overall. There are some small scratches and dings on the magazine floor plate. The butt plate has some rusting over half of its surface. The bolt, originally finished bright, is mottled with a brown patina. The rifle has excellent mechanics. The bore has some pitting, but the rifling remains strong along the barrel's length. The stock is very good with crisp markings. There are the usual small dings and scratches from use. There is an old drying crack in the butt running forward from the butt plate about 5 inches. This is a very nice, untouched rifle of the Mexican Revolution. Viva Zapata! Stock no. 24261
